Our litigation attorneys represent individuals and corporations in general liability, tort and insurance defense matters ranging from personal injury and insurance coverage disputes to large-scale commercial litigation. Clients frequently engage our litigators to act as trial counsel in high-exposure cases, and we have extensive experience in appellate litigation involving liability and insurance matters.

Client-Focused Service and Representation
Within our General Liability, Tort and Insurance Defense practice, we assign a partner to each and every matter. This partner is responsible for managing the quality and cost of the services provided and is available to the client to address any questions or concerns. This management responsibility includes the oversight of any other attorneys assigned to assist in the litigation unless the scope of the matter is limited to the extent that the assigned partner can handle all aspects of the case directly.
We offer flexible and competitive billing rates and are familiar with the policies of legal auditors such as Legalguard and Law Audit Services. We have an excellent relationship with each of these companies, and we are committed to providing full transparency with regard to our billing practices.
Along with providing representation in litigation, we are also committed to keeping our clients informed of recent developments in the law that impact their operations or have the potential to affect the outcome of pending or future litigation. To this end, senior members of our General Liability, Tort and Insurance Defense team present seminars to our clients on a regular basis.
